This past weekend, while struggling to make just a VERY simple photo book on shutterfly, I pondered the question, When did scrapbooking get to be “too much”? Too many supplies requiring TOO much time. I have huge double closet full of supplies but there I was loading photos into a simple digital photo album because I just couldn’t deal with all of the stuff any more!
What exactly was that point when scrapbooking turned into this massive combination of supplies and complicated techniques? My guess is it started when the celebrity scrapbookers got involved. Love you Tim but I am looking at you. And the larger stores took notice. Martha. And the magazines tooted so many multi layered, technical tutorials you have to take a class just to understand them.
Now it seems several companies are scaling back and offering simpler ways to scrapbook again. Have we seen the end of crazy new expensive tools & techniques? Do you think scrapbooking has peaked?
